main light switch off

Hello

is there any posibility to turn off the main beam and stay with LEDs only? - maybe to modify something at the light switch

I would like just the brackets, and mount my own LED lights. I don't need a switch, rig my own.. I have not been able to find a 2013 990 Baja parts fishe to see the brackets

Interested in seeing the mount for the light switch. Is everyone mounting it on the right of the speedo or...?
Thanks.

The factory kit replaces the kill/start switch with a kill/start/aux light switch. Makes for a nice clean install.

Here's pics of the results on my SM-T of the factory kit. Camera set on a tripod next to bike. All pics with camera set on the same exposure & F-stop.

Low beam/no aux lights - Good light pattern close to the bike with the typical sharp cut-off which can be so troubling to cornering.


High-beam/no aux lights - Decent reach forward and not terrible fill but not great for road surface detail at speed and could be better in the corners.


High-beam/ aux lights on - Provides good fill light and because of wide beam does a nice job of lighting up hilly & twisty sections where the stock light alone would leave me wanting.


I like'em. :)

Yes, if you modify the supplied wiring harness. I want to modify the wiring harness so I can turn off the main headlight.

Anybody know about these, they are using them with the rally kits on the thumpers section of the forum.

Hi

I've put a switch for the main beam - the green cable.
The blue one is for hi beam; the white for parking light.
